Private island Zopango is located in the Asese Bay, the less frequented, the most preserved and authentic side of Granada’s Archipelago.

350  islets make this archipelago also known as ‘Las Isletas’ unique in Central America!

This archipelago is part of the huge Lake Cocibolca, also called the Sweet Sea… (More than 8000 km sq.!)

The Isletas are the remnants of an eruption of Volcano Mombacho (20 000 years ago) which is now covered by a dense tropical cloud forest easy to visit and only a 20 minutes drive away from the colonial city of Granada, one of the oldest and most interesting cities in Nicaragua.

Granada is located at 1 hour drive away from Managua International airport.

Get to Zopango in just 30 minutes from Granada center (car + boat)!
